What is a B/C ratio and what is the reason for this blood test?

My wife works in a hospital, and she told me this:

Bun urea nitrogen/Creatinine.

Used as an index of gastrointestinal bleeding in children, and can differentiate between upper and lower G/I bleeds.

Good info can be found by using Google for BUN/Cr ratio.

Yeah, what he said - it used to be called BUN/Creatinine ratio, and is also a useful index of kidney function (Spent years in a clinical lab meself, they change the nomenclature just to keep things obscure.)
